Eleven Everett High School students enrolled in the Health Science Pathway (HSP) were invited to attend a Multi-Chamber of Commerce Healthcare Forum at Anthony’s of Malden that featured a distinguished group of speakers and guests.
Leaders from Cambridge Health Alliance, Melrose/Wakefield Healthcare, Beth Israel Deaconess, the East Boston Neighborhood Health Center, and the MGH Chelsea Healthcare Center discussed a variety of pressing topics, including access to care, community-based clinics, and inter-agency collaboration.
HSP students are exposed to a multitude of aspects of the healthcare sector in a variety of methods. Through research-based projects, hands-on and skills-based activities, internships, classroom lectures, and field trips/guest speakers, the students acquire a strong grasp on what it takes to be successful in the Allied Health field.
The eleven HPS seniors who attended the field trip are currently participating in coursework and experiences in several areas, including clinical care, athletic training, public health, and medical interpretation.
